2013 Kobe Elite meets the 2010 Christmas Kobe release in this color swap by Lancer Customs. The previously white, black and gold Kobe Elite 7 has been given a a complete makeover to match that of the “Grinch” Kobe 6. The biggest change starts with a likely airbrushed upper going from white mamba to green mamba scales. Next the midsole and sole took the same color change from a clear, white and black.
Remember the days when custom sneakers mostly meant Dunks, Air Force 1s, canvas Vans and Chuck Taylors? If not then you probably stumbled across custom sneakers pretty recently as the modern technical basketball shoe seems to be THE base of choice the past year and a half. High price or not the top Nike basketball sneakers for court action have gotten the casual custom treatment high and low. The elder statesmen Kobe hasn’t seen his kicks get all the attention of say Lebrons but he has one here and there. The most recent is a “Deep Space” theme customization on the Nike Kobe VII by JustBeast Customs.
